IOE’s New Lab for Evidence-based Assessments of Educational Innovation to Help Better Inform Sector Policy and Practice
We are happy to announce a call for multiple positions of Research Assistant / Research Associate to join the International Laboratory for the Evidence-Based Assessment of Educational Practices and Innovations, a new R&D division that has recently come on stream at the HSE Institute of Education Moscow.
The concrete block in the courtyard of the HSE Institute of Education has been a lasting image of the WW2 era. However, last summer, the institute’s staff came up with the idea of turning it into a piece of art. The idea was put forth by Igor Chirikov, Director of the Centre of Sociology of Higher Education, whereby this useless piece of concrete would be transformed into a monument to the ‘anonymous peer reviewer’. Moreover, this idea ended up garnering the most support as a result of an internal vote.
A group of HSE staff has launched a Kickstarter account to raise funds for an unusual project – a monument to an anonymous peer reviewer. If enough money is raised, the monument will be erected near the HSE Institute of Education.
